ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I relocated to LA two years ago to accept a job at a local university after a seven year CA hiatus and after stops in UT and GA. Love to meet smart and active women for romance (platonic friendships are welcome that add value even if we choose not to date) who want to engage in conversation, try new things both in and outdoors, and experience life to the fullest.

Random thoughts and interests

1. I like multicolored dress socks, wingtip shoes, and am always looking for deals on clothes.
2. I really like SF Giants baseball.
3. My friends are keepers and I'm selective about who I spend time with.
4. My office is decorated with art and baseball memorabilia (theater colleague told me I'm the only
other person with taste)
5. I've never been in police issued handcuffs.
6. I'm ready to meet someone who I complement and her me.
7. This one isn't random, but will help you to locate me. I live on the West Side of LA. My
preference is to date someone close but this is not a deal breaker.

I take care of myself physically,intellectually, and spiritually (still trying to figure out how to do all three simultaneously). I enjoy all things active and on the weekends you will find me in the gym, riding my bike, or hiking (Come join me:) I find joy and peace in nature and miss the mountains of Utah and look forward to outdoor trips beyond LA (lots of camping and backpacking gear).

I like the cultural stimulation of museums (Getty) but also enjoy watching college football, baseball, and dramatic movies that leave lasting impressions. I have spent the last two years in intensive self reflection and have developed an interest in energetic healing. I've consciously addressed and continue to move past energetic, spiritual, and mental limitations that prevent me from staying true to my path and developing emotional bonds with others. I now understand the importance of vulnerability and I am not afraid of sharing myself with others (like most men I let my masculinity define me for a long time). Feeling emotions is a good thing and I thrive in having an open heart.

I received my PhD three years ago after switching careers in my late 20s when I decided I wanted to teach at the collegiate level. I have found my path and was inspired to dream that I could develop the foundation to help students realize that they have the capability to fulfill their individual dreams as well. I love mentoring students and challenging them to exceed expectations.

Central to my personal philosophy and one that guides me is that I do not tell others how to live their lives and expect the same in return. I'm not controlling nor do I like to be controlled. What I try to do is inspire those around me to believe in themselves and have the courage to seek out what they want regardless of what others think.

The quote below epitomizes who I aspire to be while recognizing that it is a work in progress.

"Integrity is one of several paths. It distinguishes itself from others because it is the right path, and the only one upon which you will never get lost" M.H. McKee

I often reflect on the quote above when I have to make difficult decisions. It's never easy but I do believe you have to be true to yourself if you want to be true to others. It hurts sometimes.

What am I looking for in a woman?

I'm interested in finding my energetic and spiritual counterpart. I like a woman who likes a man who can be a man, but are not afraid to see one display emotion or sensitivity. I really do enjoy the mental stimulation aspect of relationships, and I love women who are ambitious and open to challenges on all levels. I like motivated and driven women who know what they want and do not allow themselves to be intimidated in the process. I find strong, active, intelligent, independent women to be mentally exhilarating and sexy. Let's trade a few emails and if there's an interest, a phone call and meet for coffee.
